organic piano

after a day without piano, some invisible muscle is eager to be flexed.
i’m glad it didn’t take so long for me to notice how much
i need this out-of-tune instrument to play.

sus chords and second inversions
3-6-2-5 progressions, scales with inconvenient fingering
unknowable pedals, things that go “bump”
in the dark of my piano, wooden box and metal string

if i play it like a drummer i can almost swing
if i play it like a singer i can almost sing

following an open sound along
